-- not only taxes, but there are over 100 local bond issues in california this year and dozens of local tax measures. if they feel like they are getting squeezed economically, i think they'll be less inclined to vote for taxes at the state level and at the local level and bonds. and i think that's where it could come out and bite. >> dan, i want to ask you this. what about the demeanor of the man? is he thinking about the potential of losing this? he must be thinking about that and what's that doing to his demeanor and his whole attitude to this thing? he's going to prop 30. is he prepared to not win it? >> i suppose he is. he says he is. he says he's -- he'll follow the will of the people. i think the jerry brown that's here now is different in many ways than the jerry brown i saw 30, 35 years ago when we were both much younger. he is much more -- i don't think he's changed inside very much. but i think his demeanor has changed and i think he's much more cautious, less willing to go out on a limb, very kind of, almost risk averse in many respects. and that's kind of a new jerry brown and i

will be talking about heavy snow, locally up to two feet possible across parts of the state of west virginia. many will be out of power and we will get that cold blast of air. that poses a dangerous situation not just for when the storm is on going across the mid-atlantic, but after that. with the power outages and the cold air in place. i quickly want to go over how to prepare. many should be thinking about that across portions of the mid-atlantic and the northeast. make sure your house and your yard is cleaned up. stock up for the long event including gasoline, batteries, flashlights and even drinking and food. so make sure you are stocked up for that. check in on your neighbors and don't forget your pets. have a plan in place. sandy is forecast still to make landfall across the mid-atlantic and northeast coast into monday night. we don't want to focus on where the center of sandy will be making landfall. it is a very large storm system. the national hurricane system stated that tropical storm-force winds exstepped from the center of the storm up to 520 miles. meaning the total storm coverage is

a couple of things i want the public tknow they can do. first of all, because, you know, our local law enforcement, our first responders are being swamped, to the extent that everybody can be out there looking out for their neighbors, especially older folks, i think that's really important. if you've got a neighbor nearby and not sure how they handle a power outage, flooding, et cetera, go over and visit them, knock on their door. make sure that they're doing okay. that can make a big difference. the public can be the eyes and ears in terms of identifying unmet needs. second thing. the reason we're here is because the red cross knows what it's doing when it comes to emergency response, and so for people all across the country who have not been affected, now is the time to show the kind of generosity that makes america the greatest nation on earth and a good place to express that generosity is by contributing to the red cross. obviously, you can go on their website. the red cross knows what they're doing. they're in close contact with federal, state and local officials. they will ma
>> you are watching wbal-tv 11. live, local, late breaking. this is 11 news at noon. >> good afternoon. our big story, even with the on their fans were feet cheering on their home team. things were exciting up until the ninth when russell martin opened things up for the orioles. he led off the inning with a home run in. new york would go on to score five runs in the last inning. were certainly disappointed after the loss, but they did not lose their pride. >> it was certainly upsetting, but i still have faith. my model is it is never easy -- moto is, it is never easy. >> we have two more to go at least. we will come back and give it our best. >> they take on the gis to night. be sure to tune in at 6:00 for life, a team coverage. local businesses are making big bucks off of the o's win. a new sportswear shop work all night to print them and get them on the racks for eager fans. restaurants are hosting watch parties for vans that could not make it to the ballpark. for businesses cashing in opening day all over again. >> opening day is pretty large, needless to say, and we're ho
to disrupt not just at the local level, but the global economy. unfortunately, what you're hearing is too much of the gloom and doom in terms of where america is when it comes to competitiveness. my view is that it is still the best country on the planet when it comes to starting up a business, advancing an idea you have or access to talent. the challenge we have before us because we are the architect of our own destiny, that there are key issues we need to confront. if you look at the next 30 years, if you do not address them, i do not think we can remain the most competitive country in the world. first, i think it comes down to immigration. it is broken. it makes absolutely no sense when we educate some of the smartest people in the world with advanced degrees and then ask them to leave the country and go start up companies elsewhere. why are we not stapling right to their graduate application a visa or a green card? second, when it comes to education, the challenge we have domestically is that that system is also broken as we look for the next 30 years. in detroit, for example, there w
, and we will continue to speak with local authorities. >> earlier, keikichi hanada spoke to nhk world's who covered this story. >> we saw tens of thousands of people turn up at the rally last month. what drives these people? >> quite simply, they fear for their safety. their houses and their children's schools are stone's throws away from the fences around the air base. many of them saw what could happen eight years ago. a u.s. helicopter crashed on the grounds of a nearby university, so they're fighting against aircraft that they see as unreliable. >> so, why did u.s. and japanese officials go ahead? >> well, they went ahead for logistic and strategic reasons. the marines have been using helicopters that are obsolete, so they need to find a replacement. on the strategic level, u.s. military commanders are implementing a new defense strategy with more emphasis on the asia pacific region. some security analysts say they're doing so to counter china's military buildup. and that's where the osprey's advanced capabilities come in. it flies faster and five times further than the helicopter
mays plaza and inside the dugout store fans are going wild for anything orange and black. local businesses are gearing up to serve those fans and hundreds of others who come to the neighborhood. the series will bring millions to local businesses. >> it's had a positive impact. anytime you can keep people using public transportation, walking, going by the businesses, i think it's great. >> reporter: yeah. as for getting inside of the park, we have been monitoring some of the ticket selling websites. seatgeek.com says the average price for games 1 and 2, $700, $300 to $400 for standing room only. right now we can see orange lights and decorations all over the city. a lot of the landmarks lit up, the fairmont hotel transformed inside and out and city hall also awash in orange. back out here live now at at&t park, the infield again covered up. and i'm at a spot where you can come to see part of the world series game for free. we're going to see a lot of people lining up out here outside of the back side of the park. and you can stay for a couple of innings and get a pretty good view
to be president. and if you talk to people like locals like donna brazil said if only al gore had listened to us and gone to new hampshire, that's just four electoral votes, we wouldn't even have needed florida. so things can turn on that. also there's the possible nightmare scenario for maybe the country, brian, of neither candidate getting 270, getting 269. it goes into the house where each state caucuses and then casts one vote. there are 33 republican delegations. so the election would go to romney. but in the senate picks the vice president. what do you think of this? president romney and vice president bidening. wasn't supposed to work like that. so there's an unbelievable amount of mathematical different arrangements, but do look at ohio, florida and virginia. those are the three big ones. >> cameron, as we look at ohio, florida and virginia, are we overlooking a couple of states like perhaps colorado? >> i think colorado is also key. basically romney needs to run the table in colorado, virginia and ohio to feel good on election night. there's still a chance he can pull it off with two of

the budget. he did cut 15% of spending in aid to cities and towns. he did cut 4% of the budget for local schools. congratulations, you cut local education. winner! but here's what he doesn't tell you, so all those local cities and towns had to make up the money somehow. what do they do? they raise property taxes. on average they went up 24% under romney's just his four year reign. why? they had to get the money from somewhere. that's $700 a year out of the packet of all the people in massachusetts that owned a home. he doesn't tell you about that, does he? >> how about that famed bipartisanship he brags about? do you know how many times he issued vetoes? 844 vetoes. jesus! what happened to bipartisan ship? >> when you ask the president of the senate at the time, well, here's what he says about that. >> he truly didn't have an understanding of how valuable the political personal component of the business would be as he went forward with implementing the political rhetoric into political policy. >> and then even senior advisor to mitt romney himself said this. >> the governor came in as an
am a self-employed. i called my local health department and someone there, bless her soul, knew about the pre-existing conditions plan. she said, "well, you might check this website gettinguscovered.org." i was able to find out that i qualified. basically, you just have to have not been covered by insurance for a least six months, to mr. your employer cannot provide you with insurance -- which i'm self-employed -- cannot provide you insurance because of their pre-existing condition. it was fairly easy to qualify and to get it lined up. >> what is interesting i find about this program, while insurance companies are famous for saying no to everything, this one, they accept and what you to get accepted. so even if you are rejected, they encourage you to rewrite a simple form because they get fully reimbursed by the federal government. >> right. i am still kind of surprised i was that easily able to get insurance coverage with having a pre-existing condition. you hear about so many people going bankrupt. >> were you able to go for treatment? >> i was able to go to the cu , colorado univer

important for the public to continue to monitor the situation in your local community. listen to your state and local officials, follow instructions. the more you follow the instructions, the more they can deal with situation. next obviously i want to talk about the extraordinary hardship. seen over the past 48 hours. our thoughts and prayers go out to all the families to of lost loved ones. unfortunately there have been fatalities as a consequence of hurricane sandy, and it's not clear that we have counted up all the fatalities at this point. obviously this is something that is heartbreaking for the entire nation, and we certainly feel profoundly for the families who have been uprooted and will be going through some very tough times over the next several days, perhaps weeks and months. the most important message i have for them is that america is waiting. we are standing behind you, and we will do everything we can to help you get back on your feet. earlier today i had a conversation with the governors, and many of the mayors in the affected areas, including gov. christie, cuomo, and bloom
entities. associating yourself with political causes is much more controversial than giving to the local hospital. >> ryssdal: conservative political causes have been in his blood for a long time. bopp got his start with the right-to-life movement in the 1970s. and he says he quickly learned an important lesson-- campaign finance laws were keeping conservative groups from getting their message out. >> so, to defend them and to make sure that they can be effective means opposing those laws. >> ryssdal: over the past 30 years, jim bopp has challenged more than 150 campaign finance laws. he's won some of the biggest cases in the country. >> campaign finance laws don't do anything for citizens, other than stifle and limit them. the average voter could care less who's, quote, "funding" a politician or... >> ryssdal: really? >> ...or a... of course. >> ryssdal: do you think people should care about where this money's coming from? >> generally no, because it's the message. you know, you either buy the argument or don't buy the argument. generally no, it doesn't matter. truth doesn't change beca
that are in many cases for local government are best partners at fighting important poverty, that kind of stuff. >> governor walker, for you as well, the defining issue that determines the outcome in your state? >> well it's certainly about jobs. in our case it's elections are fundamentally about the future and not about the past. so i think people on the few weeks back on that night in denver and john's state outside of his hometown there when voters got to see that mitt romney had a plan and the president didn't. and now in the last few days, he's trying to gloss that over with a 20-page glossy document. he doesn't have a plan, mitt romney does. in fact just yesterday as i was traveling the state, there were literally farmers out in fields that had almost like a burma shave commercial. they had one sign after another after another that listed out the five points of his plan. people want to know how they're going to get working in janesville or green bay or wausau or milwaukee or superior. they want to know how we're going to get working again. i think it was clear after the debate. they saw r
, almost. you know, these local residents who had gathered here to watch this. they're getting to see a remarkable engineering feat along with a little bit of history, fredricka. >> casey, i know there are experts on the ground there, but it really does see at least from this vantage point, i'm 3,000 miles away, but it seems like there's an awful lot of room to the right for those wheels to kind of shimmy over and perhaps spare that tree as you just mentioned. those wheels can kind of turn in any direction, but it looks like a couple feet away from the curb on the right side. >> well, it was a couple -- it is a couple feet away from the curb now, but when it first arrived at this location, it was right up against the curb. there was no more room. within inches of the curb. so they had to back it um, reposition it, and turn it around. and i'm not sure the camera gives you the full picture, but you can see that it's now moving back in the other direction. maybe a little closer to the curb. it looks like -- i'm no engineer, but it looks like they're going to have to go left and right, le
not want to say that nothing has been done, because scott can tell this -- at the local level. the local watchdog is hurting around the country, but at the national level i do not know that a so much the case that we are not able to be vigilant anymore. i think vigilance is taking a different form. it is taking the form of more collaborative efforts, where people are working together to produce really in-depth stories that are hard hitting and take that watchdog role. it is happening in other mediums. a lot of documentary filmmaking is becoming investigative and there's more support and acknowledgment for that. if you look at the numbers over time, more newspapers do not exist, a lot of reporters have lost their jobs, that is true, you cannot deny it, but i went to the investigative reporting conference this year and there were 1500 people there, one of the largest turnouts ever. people are still doing work, doing it in different ways. the money is always hard to come by. it may be harder, but we also have wider means of distribution. it is hard to say -- there is no clear cost-benefit a
that on golden's main street filled with local merchants such as nancy taylor mason, registered independent, still undecided. not far away former ranch kid kelly condon jackson, an optometrist, bought this building for her office. amy rule, a lawyer, leans republican, but she's still not sure. john ellis is in big agriculture, the national western stock show. we gather them at the windy saddle, a homegrown coffee shop. nancy, the store owner, will be watching for specifics on the economy and social issues. >> what i'm seeing in small businesses is things are really beginning to come back but it's still really hard for people to get extended lines of credit, get funding to buy businesses. it's tough. and there isn't a candidate that represents all the things that i think are important. and that's probably not unusual, but it's much more apparent this year. >> reporter: amy struggles with social issues versus her family. >> i feel like i'm having to make a decision on the progress of my individual four-person family and moving them forward versus all of women's rights out there. and because i
from the "mercury news," and we're here because we live in a global cloueconomy. it has altered local economies because so many manufacturing and technology jobs are moving, whether it is a matter of costs for going where the trained work force is. we're fortunate to have to governors here to talk about how that change affects their jobs and what they're doing to jump- start their economies which compete with one another. this could be fun. let me start with our guest. governor hickenlooper. i knew that was going to happen. most of us here are pretty much aware of california's budget crisis. can you give us a quick briefing on where colorado is and what you are trying to do to turn things around? >> our budget is just as dressed as almost every state in the country. we have been working trying to control costs, get our pension funds in line, our state employees have not had a raise in four years. it has been difficult all the way around. the real challenge has been to try and turn public sentiment and get people to recognize it without a strong economy. it will not solve any of these
local regulation, we react and try to do everything we can to solve problems. if you are talking about deals like if you come to california, we will pay 7000 for any job, we have a little bit of that but it is hard to pay people for their business activities. we do not have enough money. they're doing that all over the state. cutting deals. we are doing that in some respects. it is our race. how does michigan spent so much subsidy attracting -- michigan is not doing that well. you have some money but what about other things to invest in and take care of? we want to make our regulatory climate more transparent. we have a long way to go. we are open and ready to go. there is a lot of people who want to keep the regulation complicated or make it worse. it is -- this could be something, you have to fight and crush opposition to change regulations. it is not a paper exercise. it is a contact sport. you have to understand that. the world is like that. we look for things and wherever we can, will do it. it is very hard to cut people a tax break. we have been in the hole for 10 years. i think
